The Autistic Brain PDF

Temple Grandin


Winner Of Best Non Fiction In The Goodreads Choice Awards 2013

Its estimated that one in almost a hundred people are diagnosed as being on the autistic spectrum but there is far more hope for them today than ever before thanks to groundbreaking new research.

In this fascinating and highly readable book, Temple Grandin offers her own experience as an autistic person alongside remarkable new discoveries about the autistic brain, as well as genetic research. She also highlights long-ignored sensory problems as well as the need to treat autism symptom by symptom, rather than with an umbrella diagnosis. Most exciting of all, she argues that raising and educating children on the autistic spectrum needs to be less about focusing on their weaknesses, and more about fostering their unique contributions.

Studies suggest that brain regions are connected differently in autistic and non-autistic people, but just how they diverge is still unclear. The new work leverages diffusion tensor imaging — which maps water molecules in the brain’s white matter — to trace connective fibers in mouse brains in greater detail than was previously possible. The Autistic Brain is supposedly about autism but the brain research can be generalized to pretty much any brain. The best parts of the book are the chapters that present the newest brain research and how that is being used to figure out why autistics are different.
